Founded on the belief, “A well-informed society is the cornerstone of a flourishing democracy,” The Epoch Times was launched in 2000 to provide uncensored and honest reporting. Our speaker, Nan Su, covers California news for The Epoch Times as a Senior Correspondent. His presentation will contrast the news coverage by his paper ( https://www.theepochtimes.com ) with other news sources. His recent articles include coverage of Gavin Newsom’s proposal for free health insurance to illegal immigrants if elected governor; and conflicting views of federal and local governments on the operation of public facilities for the purpose of injecting illegal drugs, known as safe injection sites (SIS).
A recent Op-Ed by Ted Rall in the Wall Street Journal pointed out, “Citizens see issues through increasingly narrow ideological blinders …. what about the news story that captivates half the electorate, while the other half hardly know that it exists?”
What if we don’t even hear another side? A small group of Chinese Americans who witnessed events like Tiananmen Square and religious persecution wanted to be sure their stories were heard. Thus, The Epoch Media Group (EMG) was created in New York. Some reporters in China were jailed and some tortured. Despite numerous challenges, the news outlet grew; regional bureaus with local coverage were added. Today “The Epoch Times” is just one element of EMG’s global media company which offers content in 23 languages across a variety of platforms.
Currently Mr. Su lives in San Jose, California, is married and has two daughters. He was born and raised in China before coming to the U.S. in 1989.
